I used to ask God to take away all the heartaches and pains in my life so that my happiness will be complete. I’ve prayed so desperately then, but recently I just realized that as long as I live I will always experience such things, so what I ask God these days is to teach me how to accept the things I cannot change, give me strength to change the things I can and find happiness in every circumstances.
Trials, temptations, disappointments –
all these are helps instead of hindrances,
if one uses them rightly.
They not only test the fiber of
our character but strengthen it.
Every conquering temptation represents
a new fund of moral energy.
– James Buckham
This day, I thank God Almighty for all the trials and difficulties in this life. I will not be this strong in character and in faith have I not encountered these hardships. May we all see the gems in every adversaries that comes our way. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
